Saturday, 14 May 2022 | PNS | Lucknow

Director General (Intelligence) Devendra Singh Chauhan on Friday assumed additional charge as Uttar Pradesh’s Director General of Police (DGP).

The development comes two days after Mukul Goel was removed from the post of state police chief by the Yogi Adityanath government.

Chauhan, a 1988-batch IPS officer, took the additional charge of DGP at the police headquarters here on Friday morning.

Soon after assuming the responsibility, Chauhan called on Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and held a brief discussion on the present law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh.

Later he held a meeting with senior officers and directed them to work with full sincerity and devotion to maintain law and order besides ensuring quick justice to any aggrieved who contacted them with his or her problems.

Chauhan will hold the additional charge till the appointment of a permanent DGP, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Awanish Kumar Awasthi had said on Thursday.

After removal of Goel on Wednesday, ADG (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar was given the additional charge of the state police chief.

Goel, a 1987 batch IPS officer, who has been made the Director General of Civil Defence, was removed from the post of DGP for neglecting official work, not taking interest in departmental work and inefficiency.
